Got the Belkin in today and hooked up, it's a very nice unit. Much more substantial than the Monster unit it replaced. Just wondering, for those of you that have this unit what does the in coming voltage indicator read? Mine hovers right around 116.7 most times and has dropped to 115.7. I take it this is still an acceptable reading.

I think in the US, anything between 110 and 120 is acceptable.

It indicates the incoming volatage you're getting from your power company. It will vary and, though mine rarely falls that low (I'm at 124.3 right now), I believe 115V is totally acceptable.

In a perfect world for AV equipment ... the power conditioner would have a transformer and keep a constant voltage ... but those are acceptable!

Mine reads anywhere from 119 - 124V and I have seen it on the odd occassion drop suddenly to 105V(even lower some days) and then right back up to ~120V.
